Why Gluten Free?
What's in it for me?

Current medical research has found that an amazing array
of symptoms and disease are linked to gluten intolerance.
The intolerance can range from full blown Celiac Disease
(a chronic condition that occurs when gluten triggers an
abnormal immune system response that damages the
small intestines) to a milder form of sensitivity causing
numerous health complications.

Gluten is a protein found in wheat, barley, rye, spelt,
some oats (through contamination), many cosmestics and
most processed foods. It is a staple of the American diet.
Celiac Disease affects one in 133 people in the US, many of
them undiagnosed. Nearly one-third of the American
population may be affected by the milder sensitivity
to gluten.

Gluten sensitivity creates inflammation in the body with
wide ranging effects throughout all organ systems,
including brain, heart, joints, digestive tract and more.
Diseases linked to this sensitivity include most
autoimmune conditions, such as rheumatoid arthritis,
fibromyalgia and lupus, plus anemia, cancer, psoriasis,
osteoporosis, irritable bowel disease and heart problems.
Gluten may also be linked to psychiatric and neurological
disorders, including depression, dementia, migraines,
anxiety and autism. The list of connections between
gluten sensitivity and health issues is seemingly endless.

For those with full blown Celiac Disease it becomes clear
cut that all gluten must be avoided in the diet. For the
large part of the population suffering from gluten intolerance
the need for avoidance may not be so obvious, but it is just as
vital to achieving optimal health. Once gluten is removed
from the diet, whole clusters of seemingly unrelated symptoms
may disappear, including fatigue, joint pain, respiratory
infections, memory and concentration problems, muscle cramps,
heart palpatations, bloating and unexplained weight gain.

Try eliminating gluten from your diet and you may discover
many beneficial and surprising changes in your physical
and mental well being, including more energy and improved
overall health.
